Some 250,000 people find their way to this quiet town in the north of France during summer months thanks to a well-earned reputation of being the nation’s most luxurious holiday destination. The seaside town attracts history and architectural lovers looking to get up close to some of the best examples of Roaring Twenties and Thirties buildings.
Outdoor enthusiasts will love catching a stage of the Tour de France, which crosses through here each spring. Nearby white sandy beaches, horse racing tracks and golf courses mean there are also plenty of ways to escape the city life in favor of a bit of quiet and sunshine. Plenty of local cafes and pastry shops dot the streets and a popular carousel, pirate ship and aqua slide offer fun for the younger set, too.
Le Touquet is small and easy to navigate on foot but free hop-on electric buses make their rounds on most mains streets. Bicycles offer a happy alternative for visitors looking for a quick way to get around.
